New year, new goals. Bookish goals, of course, are on top of my list. Unlike last year though, I aim to read fewer books this year, preferably those books that have been on my TBR in ages. So in this list you’ll find books, old books only.
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah from @Bionic Book Worm and you guys, if you’re not following her yet, you won’t regret it if you visit her site and give her a follow. This week’s topic is “5 Books I Need to Read in 2019”. There are plenty of incredible releases this year but as I said, I’m aiming to read more of my old books.
1.) It by Stephen King
To be honest, I’m not that impressed in the most recent film adaptation of this book. It wasn’t bad but I can’t say it’s great. I’ve seen better horror/suspense/mystery films than IT. But still, this is one of Stephen King’s best or most well-known works so I’m excited to read it.
Another thing is I’m doing a Bliss & Bleed Reading Challenge featuring all Stephen King’s books.
2.) Bird Box by Josh Mallerman
The recent adaptation got 3/5 stars from me. It was an OK film and you can read my review HERE. I heard that there are some differences between the film and book and so I need to read it. One of my friends, Nori, really liked the book and I trust her reviews so I’m pretty sure I’ll end up liking it too.:)
3.) 1984 by George Orwell
I own the book since high school and yet I haven’t read it. Am I the only one who haven’t read this book? Truth is I haven’t read much classic in my 2 decades of reading life. but that’s about to change this year because I started this personal reading challenge called Clash of Classic so you can expect a lot of Classic Book’s reviews from me this year. 🙂
4.) The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
The sequel to The Name of the Wind which is one of my favorite reads last year. I already own the book but I couldn’t make myself read it because the next book takes forever to come out. I don’t want to wait again after a cliffhanger. But I guess I can’t wait anymore.
Truth is I might reread The Name of the Wind before reading this.
5.) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman
Same with The Wise Man’s Fear, I own the book but couldn’t make myself to read it. But now that all three books in the series are all out, I’m ready to binge-read the whole series. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book/series so I’m excited to jump in the fun. 🙂
How about you guys, any book you feel the need to read this year? Like you can’t wait another year anymore to read? Share it to me and let’s chat. 🙂
